Goods and Services in Procurement

The size and infrastructure of The University of Texas at Austin make it a “city within a city.” The university encompasses over 400 departments with an assortment of purchasing needs, which means we buy any and everything. As one of the largest research institutions, the university also contributes to the uniqueness of the types of goods purchased.

The Procurement Office publicly posts UT Austin Bid Opportunities on our Bonfire portal. Click Here to learn more about Bonfire. Potential vendors also may find detailed resources in the Vendor Handbook. If you have specific questions associated with Procurement, please contact the Procurement HUB Associate.
